2004 will see South Korea completely lift its ban on Japanese pop culture. Allegedly the news has been met with considerable enthusiasm from certain sections of South Korea’s youth, especially those with an ear for J-pop.
I’m not familiar with Korean pop music, but I really don’t see what all the fuss is about, as quite frankly J-pop is rubbish. If I was to say that 90% of it is worthless pap, I think I’d be doing the industry a favour.
To prove my point, the talentless Tube held a concert in Seoul to celebrate.
How’s that for objectivity?
